About Barefoot Resort & Golf - Norman Course (North Myrtle Beach, SC)

One of the resort's four signature courses, the Barefoot Norman Golf Course at Barefoot Resort is as beautiful as it is challenging. With seven of its holes laid out along the Intracoastal Waterway, each hole takes full advantage of the natural landscape Mother Nature has to offer.

Resembling some of the best courses of the American Southwest only with tropical vegetation replacing desert sands, the course has only 60 acres of grass that need to be mowed. In places, greens and fairways run right up to the sand of bunkers while in other areas they flow seamlessly into the surrounding terrain.

It's said the Norman course is an attempt to capture Mother Nature's split personality, both beautiful and treacherous. Norman himself has said he tried to capture the spirit of Augusta National in creating the course. Like Augusta, a missed fairway here can land a golfer in considerable trouble. Although fairly flat, the course makes use a multitude of bunkers to create a course many think rivals the Dye course for difficulty.

Measuring 7,200 yards, the par-72 course features bunkers with sod walls, fairways with GN-1 Turf (a special hybrid developed by Norman), and Champion Ultra Dwarf grass on its greens. Selected by Golf Digest as one of America's top courses as well as one of the Grand Strand's best, the course shares the 35,000-square-foot Barefoot Clubhouse with the resort's three other courses. Golfers can also take advantage of The Range, more than 30 manicured acres with lights for practices.
